Market leading independent producer, Endemol Shine India, has announced that Deepak Dhar, its MD and CEO for 11 years, has decided to step down to pursue a new venture. Meanwhile, COO Abhishek Rege will be the new CEO and work along with Dhar in the transition period.


Commenting on behalf of the Endemol Shine India Board, Nicola Bamford, CEO of International Operations at Endemol Shine Group, said: “Abhishek has played a central role in Endemol Shine India’s growth during his time as Chief Operating Officer and we couldn’t ask for stronger leadership to further build on the company’s remarkable successes across non-scripted and scripted genres.  Deepak will be leaving with our sincere thanks for all he has done in driving Endemol Shine India to become the market leader that it is today and we wish him every success for the future.”

Said Rege in a statement: “I want to say a big thank you to Deepak for his leadership and support over the years and wish him the very best in his next venture.  These are incredibly exciting times for Endemol Shine India, and the world class teams we have here.  The success of global titles such as Bigg Boss and Fear Factor, alongside our ever-growing slate of drama and film, has propelled the company to the number one position it holds in the Indian market today, and the strength of our IP and talent ideally positions us for further growth.”

Said Dhar: “My journey at Endemol Shine will always hold a special place in my life. We started with a small team and big dreams back in 2006. Today, we have grown the company to be the largest content producer in the country with expertise spanning across scripted & non scripted television content, digital content and films in multiple Indian languages. The opportunity to lead Endemol Shine in making its vision a reality in India is something that I will always cherish. It has been a privilege to helm a company with disruption at its very core and to be able to bring innovation and scale to everything that we sought out to do”.
